Obama a Muslim?

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: What does the word muslim mean?

Submitted by Mao (United States), Sep 3, 2014 at 16:40

As for Obama being Muslim. Typically people view anyone who has been born to a Muslim father as a Muslim. Obama's father is Muslim, even his stepfather was Muslim. If he truly denounced the Muslim faith, then he would be considered an apostate, and wouldn't be able to be an acceptable go-between for the Muslim world and America.

When he was a candidate, his slogan was based around the word "change" but not very many people knew what this meant, or what kind of things would be affected. America's foreign policy changed from not negotiating with terrorists to changing U.S. standards of cultural diplomacy. Considering what is acceptable under the Islamic concept of Taqiyya, a Muslim is allowed to conceal their affiliation with Islam, as long as their true loyalty remains with Islam. Obama giving weapons, fighter jets, and American money to Muslim terrorists, having iftar dinners ...etc... shows to me very clearly where his loyalties are.

He cannot be for America and Israel and also for their enemies.It cannot work. Because unless the words of the Qur'an changes, then these people will still be considered to be the enemies of Islam. Though I know some who think Obama is using Islam for achieving the higher goals of the New World Order. I do believe he is purposed to transition America away from its traditional values, in order to embrace a whole different cultural landscape. I'm a big fan of the bill of rights, so I have to say that I'm not a big fan of Obama.
